she is still waiting for answers while the fbi investigates four americans killing in benghazi, libya. our sources reveal that not single fbi investigators has set foot at the crime scene 15 days after the terrorist attack. and that the crime scene has still not been secured. those are just two headlines, two new pieces of information tonight. that is not all we're learning. cnn national security correspondent fran townsend joins us now. as we often mention, fran is a former white house homeland security adviser and a member of the security adviser committee and was recently in libya with her xworm, mccann drew & forbes. also with us, bob bear and we have the daily beast. you have new reporting. >> so you understand when this happens and the fbi opens the investigation one of the first thing is go to the state department and say, please request permission for to us enter the country, get to the crime scene, benghazi, and please request that we will have the security and the ability to do that, that we will have access to the crime scene, that we will have access to any individuals tha

will now be analyzed. now the fbi is pretty skeptical about this information. and so, frankly, is the police chief here. he says, hey, we have to check this out. >> i don't think t's mr. hoffa. it would be great if it was. i would love to bring closure to his family and the hundreds of thousands of teamsters that idolize this man. just for southeastern michigan. this is like an open wound that won't go away. >> there's been a lot of earth moved looking for the remains of jimmy hoffa. all negative so far. >> reporter: two samples were removed from the ground. police say they looked murky because of all the groundwater. those samples are now going to a lab at michigan state university. and they expect to know some time monday whether there are human remains buried beneath the driveway. if there are, then there will be a larger excavation. they've had tips before that have not panned out. now the question, is will police crack the case, or will it remain an unsolved mystery? susan candiotti, cnn, roseville, michigan. >> thank you. >>> we talked with a retired fbi agent a while ag
know, jarks, have you followed this -- everybody is waiting for the fbi to go to benghazi to find the people that killed our ambassador. but the fbi will not go to benghazi. they are in tripoli at our embassy there which has good security. they will not go to benghazi because the security is so awful. even now, 12, 14 days after the attack. so you have got to know that these al qaeda terrorist crazies, they knew that, and they were gunning for our ambassador and the white house was informed of it right away and they are covering that up, jack jacobs. >> it is absolutely true. now it's known the fbi is not only in benghazi, they are not going either. indeed it is even worse than that. there is a large number of witnesses whom they could interview in benghazi who will not go to tripoli to get interviewed by the fbi. they are very much concerned about their names being released, their families being in trouble. if they testify. they are not going anywhere. the fbi is not going to give any information from people who were on the ground and know what happened in benghazi. >> jennifer r
to gain access to the crime scene, except, that is, for fbi agents and now for them, it's no longer worth taking the risk to going to benghazi. but there is at least some indication tonight that enough is known about who did this to begin planning some kind of response. a senior american official telling us that the pentagon and intelligence community have begun preparing so-called target packages, detailed information that can be used to capture or kill some of the terrorists who did this. now, at the same time, though, the administration continues to come under withering fire, especially, not exclusively, from republican lawmakers over the killings and whether they might have been prevented some way. members of the house oversight committee today sent a letter to the state department asking for answers in person from secretary clinton, leveling serious allegations including these, the attack quote, was clearly neve as administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest. more damningly, this, quote, multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed the committ
, the state department is sending all questions to the f.b.i. >> all of the officials having to do with the staws of the scene in benghazi, what it was, what it is, they are now the province of the f.b.i. as they go forward with this investigation. i will send you to them on any those questions. >>reporter: as we reported, 20 days of at murder of the four americans, the f.b.i. has yet to step foot in benghazi. in other words, we have a situation in eastern libya where the mission is part of a wild west and we do not have any firm control of that. >>shepard: a lot of people are weighing in on the timing of the administration's response to this. >>reporter: also in the briefing the spokesman for the state department saying secretary of state clinton is rejecting calls for the resignation of ambassador rice. the allegation is ambassador rice and others in the administration cherry picked intelligence to fit the story like benghazi was a demonstration that spun out-of-control. the issue now is whether the nation's top intelligence officer, the director of national intelligence, or a d.
that he was placed on al-qaeda hit list. asked if he cabled back the concerns. state department that the f.b.i. is investigating however a former ambassador told fox news megyn kelly that the contents of the stevens journal may expose a failing to the approach to the region. >> i'm sure if he believed that security was a problem he would have informed the state department's diplomatic security bureau and should have taken the necessary steps. the fact that he and three other americans were killed by definition shows there was massive failure of security. >> reporter: at first cnn only cited an individual familiar with his thinking. anderson cooper exposed the existence of the journal an aide to secretary clinton, he gave a furious statement of locking humanity that the network giachb to the stevens family to return the journal promptly and not report on personal details. now enter michael hastings a reporter best known for having written a story for rolling stone a few years back that resulted in the resignation in of stanley mcchrystal. he aoe78d them, why they didn't the consulate and find t
in the consulate of benghazi this is outrageous. >> three weeks later we cannot send in the fbi it is too dangerous but the reporters are picking up sensitive documents talking about the people in libya. three weeks later. lou: not securing a because we have no personnel i know people in the fbi and i have the highest respect one of my oldest friends is there. the idea they make them look like in the tent and even want to continue the description to make them look horrible. >> it was either a massive intelligence failure to not know the was a security threat to and if not then a massive security failure to not protect them. either way it is now a cover up. remember the youtube movie? they said the intelligence community said it was there fault. lou: one of the where does things i have never seen comes out with the statement on a friday and has not appeared in public he could be in a river bank fishing while this is fishing and we would not know better. >> they will blame the state department and the intelligence was known why did they not provide anything more than some read the cops. lou: why woul
government that told our f.b.i. you can't talk to the people in custody that killed the four americans including the ambassador as an you can't go to benghazi. you don't want to pull that guy aside and say are you kidding me? >> eric: in the aftermath, president obama had campaign stops. campaign is very important. that is why he couldn't meet with netanyahu. if he meet with him he would have to meet with ten is what inside white house sources have said. so meet with ten. >> he is going to get his checks anyway. come on. >> gretchen: we discussed the why politically because you don't want to create news coming out of those meetings when it looks ahead in the polls so you coast. hillary clinton -- she is the hardest working person in washington. she is flying all over the world taking all these meetings for the president. a lot of people are going to wonder. >> don't they see this man is more interested in getting re-elected than doing the job he was elected to do in the first place, keeping us safe, number one. four american diplomats are dead. let's make sure that four more won't get
in history say they had to notify the fbi after someone illegally applauded the movie on youtube over the weekend. there were also false internet rumors that fox is was going to air the fall movie for free. as a result, the film took in less than a million dollars of the weekend, down 27% from the previous weekend. the fbi is investigating. we call the motion picture association of america for, because they have to be concerned about intellectual property rights and trademark of creativity. for some reason they have not gotten back to a set. we are waiting. we are waiting. we will probably be waiting for some time. meanwhile, president obama receiving a not so helpful endorsement from the elite of hollywood during a concert last night in washington. madonna took a moment to tell her fans to support president obama. [inaudible] lou: don't you love it when we see in popular culture the appeal to the highest common denominator. it's inspiring, really, isn't it? no word yet on whether -- well, there is no word yet on whether president obama appreciates the support. we're sure he does. the
there is a security issue? >> apparently we withdraw non-essential personnel before, but the fbi team that is supposed to be investigating has apparently not gonna get either. lou: they are reporting that they have been there for days and they are not moving around for fear of their own safety, yet we have an ambassador with the state department that has been alerted to the security concerns without, without protection. >> this is a debacle. you cannot lose for americans and not to include somebody has messed up very badly. somebody should be held responsible. think that's one reason why the administration has planned about this. lou: the idea that this is a cover-up straight forward questions about the murder of a mess of stevenson got three other americans including the two former u.s. navy seals still lusted up and address the american people on what in the world is going on. now they're saying they cannot talk about it because the fbi is called up in a hotel and tripoli >> that does not cut it. lou: this is outrageous. >> there are only two explanations, one is they're lying and covering up, but t
learn from bret baier and his reporting as of right now there hasn't been a single fbi agent on the ground in benghazi. we're all looking toward that investigation because that's what we're told from the administration will provide more answers, the fbi investigation, if no one is on the ground what are we to make of that? >> i think you make a couple of things. why is anybody not on the ground? is it too dangerous for the fbi to go there? secondly if the administration says, hold your horses wait until we got full investigation and we find out there is no investigation, again, it is that drip, drip, drip. what did they know? when did they know it? why are they trying to cover it up and what is going on? it wasn't so unsafe in benghazi a cnn reporter went there several days ago and got the ambassador's personal diary. maybe somebody is there but not the united states fbi. jenna: we'll watch the continuing to develop story. kt, thanks for your insights. well have much more on the controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. top senators on the senate foreign rel

that he was on an al-qaeda hit list. state department spokesman the f.b.i. is investigating. however, a former u.s. ambassador told fox news megyn kelly the contents may expose, quote a failing in the overall approach to the region. >> i'm sure if he believed that security was a problem, he would have informed the state department's bureau. they would have made a threat assessment and taken necessary steps. fact that he and three americans were killed shows there was massive failure of security. >> at first cnn cited one source an aide to secretary clinton, they. they gave a furious statement by failing assurances reportedly gave to his family to return the journal. cnn executives dispute. that now enter michael hastings best known for having written the story for rolling stone a few years back that resulted in the resignation of stanley mcchrystal. he e-mailed, quote, why does the state department search the consulate and find the diary first. what other potential valuable intelligence was left behind? was any classified or top secret material also left? on classified material the a

[♪...] ashley: the fbi is trying to determine who shot two border patrol agents killing 30-year-old agent and wounding another. the shooting took place in arizona, a drug trafficking core door 5 miles northeast of the border with mexico. the agents on routine patrol of horseback coming under fire, third agent was not hurt. the last agent fatally shot on duty was murdered back in 2010 with a gun link to operation fast and furious. just last month it was renamed in his honor. public-sector unions lining their pockets with taxpayer money the private sector struggles. taxpayers even picking up the tab for the time government employees spend working on union related manners resulting in $1 billion every year. joining me now, author of "the new york times" bestseller "shadow bosses." i guess the title says it all. what we're talking about is what they call officially time, this is time spent by government workers, government union workers working on union issues and not actually doing their worjob. >> 70% of the time they spend on general labor management
smuggle ing area in that city. the f.b.i. is now investigating. >> each time that a law enforcement person is killed or shot or injured in the line of duty, we have to take a moment and think of the families and the heroes involved. we very much feel in our hearts and prayers going to the families. >>trace: officials named that border patrol station after brian terry. now, sir, what are authorities doing to find the suspects? >>guest: everything. this is a desert area that is flat, and runs up to the natural forest. it is a great area for smuggling but a difficult place to find someone. so we have virtually an army with helicopters in the air, a drone, as well, all looking for the suspects. early this morning at 2:00 a.m., local time, a sensor laid down by the border patrol on a known smuggling route, three agents went out. one was killed. another has two gunshots. he will be okay. a third was not hit. right new we told no one is in custody and no firearms have been recovered. here is what we don't know: how many shots were fired? what were we awayed with? was anyone wounded? there are thr
-- security is so bad that the fbi won't even even go in now to investigate the case. and i want to stay with this. what about this coverup? >> it is a coverup. >> susan rice goes out and basically lies to the american people on a number of news shows, we now know that the administration knew right away that this was a pre-planned al qaeda terrorist operation and they lied and now they're covering up the lie. >> within 24 hours they knew it was an al qaeda operation. >> so that's why they don't want obama loose on this foreign policy. >> obama never takes -- he never says i'm to blame. it's always george bush is to blame, somebody else is to blame. he's never to blame. he is to blame. it's on his watch. >> go ahead, mark. >> the one thing that i have to say in defense of the administration here, and i know the security situation in the north africa quite well because of my own experience. it was confusing in the beginning. but it's no excuse if going out there and trotting out some alibi that it was not a terrorist attack. so i agree with that. but the one thing i want to say is the pres
's secretaries gave prep video to the gore campaign. >> gore campaign went straight to the fbi. >> what happened to her? >> she went to prison for a year. >> what's so secret? i pretended to be a candidate. limited government -- >> just limited government. what kind of limits are you talking about? can you be specific. >> yes, i can list cuts. >> would you cut defense? >> so you're soft on defense? >> i knew how i should answer the questions, but under pressure it's hard. i'm saying take it back to the clinton days. "instinct is to answer the questions that are asked, but consultants day don't. >> you're still answering my questions, but most of the time you want to be delivering your message. >> they say sarah palin was good at that. >> governor palin answered the questions in her debate on her terms. >> governor palin, is that so? >> that's not so, but because that's a quick answer i want to talk about my record on energy. >> she was able to pivot most of the questions on to ground that she was comfortable in handling the questions on. >> they kept grilling me. >> do you believe college is stu
. shoe so you are not going to wait for the fbi then, senator? >> no. and i'm a signatory on the letter. i wanted to make this clear, geraldo. we voted in the committee on the 18th of september to send the letter. it was not sent until the 27th. between the 18th and 27th the information came out about the diary that is when senator corker of tennessee and myself sent the letter asking for the communiques. we believe if chris stevens' diary is correct he sent information to the administration and shelling and they failedsmith failed to to do what they should have done to protect the ambassador. >> can this affect the vote turnout and total in florida? >> i think so. when you look at the bush administration, a moment was katrina. when the american people thought that the administration was not properly handling katrina. this so me is potentially much more serious and much more devastating because not only is it -- it is either total incompetentence or worse so i don't know which you want to call it. say that they were totally incompetent and didn't know what it was and one person wasn't s
.s. certainly had a part in overturning a dictator, muammar gadhafi, and now we have a situation where the fbi, we are told, won't even go to benghazi, which was the seat of the rebel which was the seat of the rebel the folks that we supported because it's so dangerous there, so they're investigate this from a tripoli, which is 400 miles away. what does that tell you, a -- >> thousands of libyans demonstrated. they went after these militia extremists which are al qaeda-affiliated themselves. the united states is more popular in libya than any country in the arab world, but they need help. after it was over, did we give them the assistance they needed? no. their borders are porous. al qaeda is coming in. they don't have a strong government. they have a people that like the united states of america. in afghanistan we are having americans killed by "insiders." >> the troops that we're training. >> yeah. >> forces we are training in uniform. they just inflicted the greatest damage on kandahar since the tet offensive. they blew up irreplaceable aircraft, and it's because the president has consisten
the deadly attack on our consulate in benghazi, the fbi are not there. but reportedly documents are left around unsecured. this is also an incredible story. >> it indeed is, larry. a "washington post" reporter visited the wounded consulate today and found no presence of security. the post found sensitive official documents scattered on the floors, including evacuation plans in case of attack, ambassador stevens' schedule and the names of libyan nationals working for the consulate, all lying in the open unsecured. the investigators have remained in tripoli hundreds of miles away from benghazi because of safety concerns and libyan contractors say they have not been contracted by the libyan or american governments. the post reports the only security at the compound is two private guards paid for by the landlord. larry, back to you. >> wow, great stuff. i turn back to the kudlow caucus for a quick whip around on this subject. is the benghazi couatastrophe going to become a big issue in this campaign? >> i think it dents president obama's reputation as an international leader. i think ambassa

of f.b.i. experts? >> yeah. at a time when most americans would want to rally, instead, we've had this bizarre response, which only leads me to believe either number one, there was gross negligence or imcompetence involved. or this administration doesn't want all of us to realize that libya may now be a failed state if the f.b.i. agents who are well trained can't even make it into benghazi. when you look at that narrative, with the backdrop of in afghanistan we have afghans that we are partnering with killing americans. we have now iranians flying in iraqi air space over iraq to syria to deliver arms. you have a situation where iran now believes we're a nation in decline and therefore, they're going ahead with uranium enrichment. you look at russia who apparently is waiting until after this election to start talking about watering down our missile defense. this administration has weakened our nation tremendously through the huge debts we've run up over the last three or four years. and the fact is, i don't know whether it's that narrative they're trying to stay away from or there
